Default IMG - 6 years after graduation - any chances?

Hi all,

I've been out of clinical medicine for the past 6 years and I'm wondering what my chances are for doing a residency in the US.

I have a green card and I did a PhD (in the US) in basic sciences after my MD. So far I've taken USMLE Step 1 (99%) and CS (Pass), and I'm thinking to take CK soon.

So what do you guys think? Any chances? It looks like most programs prefer graduation within the last 5 years.
